Hi for led light u have to press the up arrow once to off and to on same button press once
Hey guys, i juz brought a dslr and was wondering how long before i need to get a dry cabinet? i am currently keeping it in the bag given by canon
I got my Akarui E26D around 2 weeks ago from Harvey Norman for $106.20 (after 10% discount, you'll need to ask them if any discount). It's analogue and didn't have any problem with the setting. The position is around 5pm and the guage has been hovering around 45-50 ever since.
Size is just right to fit (with less than or around 1cm clearance between dry cabinet and table) under my Ikea table in my room

i just bought my digi analog 30L dry cabinet from parasilk from bedok at $109.
been trying to figure up how to set it to ard 45 RH. turn the knob to 1-2 o clock ( towards red region ) after 8 hours of rest, i saw my RH at 33%. switch to 11 to 12 o clock ( towards green region )after 12 hours of work life ( sux ), return back home and the RH is at 29%...
Anyone experience this problem? thought normally the knob should be position at 1-2 o clock to get 45%RH.
btw my set is just 1 dslr and 2 lenses with some batteries.

Hi, I am a newbie and am considering a dry cabinet. Having read what was posted, I think I know a little more, plus some of my technicial knowedge on airconditioning and heating.
1) Having a dry cabinet will provide a more stable and constant environment for your equipment.
2) I don't think you need to keep away fungus by setting to 35% RH. Generally, 60% is good enough but 50% is safe. Nothing wrong with 35%, just that you consume more energy since the machine or rather the heater needs to cut in more often.
3) You can place everything inside the dry cabinet. But I am sure you know the plastic hood, strap, etc will not give you problem outside the dry cabinet. It is just about how much you can stuff inside that cabinet.
4) If you prefer problem free, analog should be better since they are 'mechanical' as compared to electronic. But today electronic are reliable too.
5) Battery power will drain off even if you do not use them but leaving them inside the equipment will drain off the power faster. No damage to it but just a good practise to remove them.
Now the problem is which to buy and where is the cheapest. Sometime going the distance for $10 less may not be a good choice. If you need to go back for some reasons, the cost of transport may be higher.
I am also very confused now but will get one by next week to be safe.
Bro...I'm not trying to be blunt but this review of yours have been mentioned for a few years already. Pros and Cons already argued, fought, flamed and burned. But from someone who has intimate knowledge on the design of the dry cabinet, I can only tell you this: power consumption is no more than 10watts. Hardly a dollar a month. Do a search and you can find a lot of research articles mentioned in CS.
Being confused is ok but don't be CONned and then FUSED.
If you're not getting a dry cab/box, leave it on your desk or something. I've read somewhere (think it's sgcamerastore) that the darkness and lack of airflow in your camera bag will promote fungi growth.
I've also heard if you shoot everyday, you don't need a dry-cab. i don't think you need to use it for extensive shooting everyday, even though i don't think it's an 1 snap daily kind of philosophy..
Want to get back to photography
i got Dry box free with my D5000.. May know wheter sufficient for one Camera & two lens..
Now Im using camera everyday & store in nikkon back itself..
Or else i need to go for Dry cabinet...
Same for me too. mine at 11, RH41-43% quite contant. 1xdslr, 4lens, 1flash & various filters. Think doesn't matter where the dial hits, what matters is tune to what you need. I adjust a bit day by day and got a constant reading after a few days.Originally Posted by Bukitimah
